On Monday night, Brownell released a statement that said Jennings had been indefinitely suspended for not complying with the team's academic standards.
The former McDonald's All-American did not travel with Clemson for Tuesday night's game against Virginia. He will not be with the team for Saturday's trip to Virginia Tech.
Jennings, a 6-foot-9 junior who's started 15 games this season, is averaging 8.9 points and 5.4 rebounds. He was suspended for one game earlier this season because of an incident with an assistant coach while the Tigers were playing in Hawaii.
Brownell addressed Jennings' current suspension on Friday afternoon.
"He's not practicing this week. We've set some guidelines up that I want him to meet," Brownell said. "If he takes care of those things, gets himself where I think he's in a good place, then we'll talk about bringing him back."
The second-year coach was asked about his level of frustration with the suspension.
"It's part of college basketball. If you're about doing things the right way and you're about holding kids accountable, you're going to have these situations," Brownell said. "I think there's a lot of coaches that wouldn't discipline kids for some of the things that happened. They wouldn't take them out of the games.
"I believe, at times, you've got to sit kids down. You've got to make them understand it's a privilege to be a part of the program. When you don't do the things you need to do all the time, there's going to be consequences. Sometimes those consequences are going to be, to take you out of a game. Obviously I felt that way this time."
